“Australian girls dress as well as girls overseas – says noted Melbourne designer” (Linda Patricia), quoted in the Argus (Melbourne) newspaper on 32st August 1950, page 24. Note the unintentional sense of cultural inferiority! The shoes are “sensible” and gloves common.

“Gay, young fashions for teenagers bear the same important styles as those for adults, but with the avoidance of any exaggeration.”

The Australian Women’s Weekly, 27th May 1950 page 60.
